Kodak says Samsung’s Galaxy Tab infringes patents

Estman Kodak Co. yesterday charged Samsung with infringing five of its patents in the Galaxy Tab.

Samsung previously agreed to pay Kodak $550 million for infringing one of the patents in 2008, which was settled before Samsung started selling the Galaxy Tab.

The other patents in the new suit cover things like automatically transmitting images from an electronic camera to a service provider, capturing digital photos to be transferred to an email address, and transmitting photos from a digital camera over a cellular or Wi-Fi network.

Kodak, which is rumoured to be working on filing for bankruptcy protection, said it has licensed its digital imaging patents to more than 30 companies including LG, Motorola and Nokia.

Last week Kodak also filed complaints against Apple and HTC. Kodak alleges that smartphones and tablets from both companies infringe its patents related to transmitting images.
